Teiid 8.3 Alpha1 Posted

The first alpha of 8.3 is now available in our downloads.  This alpha features:
  • TEIID-2253 Multi-source improvements - multi-source planning was significantly improved, which will result in much better plans when using multi-source models. The user may also now configure the multi-source column name, auto-populate the multi-column in the actual metadata, and use non-literal multi-source column values.
  • TEIID-1557 Generated Key Retrieval - JDBC now supports generated key retrieval, see the Client and the Developers Guides for more.
As well as several important fixes and general socket buffering improvements.  There will of course be more to come with this release shortly.



  1. Steven,

    Is the documentation updated on how to use this or that would only be done after 8.3 final?

  2. Sorry, the comment moderation for preventing spam held your comment in limbo. The multi-source changes are transparent to the user query. Generated key retrieval works as per the JDBC docs and will work fine for any simplistic scenario (where the Teiid insert mimics a JDBC source insert that returns the expected key). Additional enhancements will be needed for more complex/user driven key retrievals.
